The Maniacal Rantings of Lard Bobbo

The RE-Returning

This one is mainly for my homies on the MineTrek2 server, who'd better know me as Lard_Bobbo (go fig). Now while I haven't updated this in over 4 years (personally I was shocked and awed the I could remember my password) I am apparently not the only one to "return from the dead." And I have pictures for proof...

Now for those who may not know the story... In the September-October-ish time of 2011, I, in my never ending quest to play the next videogame, have heard wispers of this game called Minecraft, then I stumbled upon this...

Safe to say my mind was sufficiently blown, and sure enough, I had my sister's friend's husband gift me Minecraft for my birthday. Unfortunately at the time Halkun's 1-1 scale Enterprise-D was not available on regular Minecraft...blahblahblah...long story short: Minecraft 1.2.5 came out...gave rise to the MineTrek2 sever, and there was much rejoicing.

And then tonight (well 4:15 in the morning) Halkun himself appeared on the server! And I actually talked to him for a little bit, he said that he was being interviewed for a Minecraft documentary, and this was in fact the first time he signed on in 10 months (this was news to me, but if I'd paid attention I'd have never dropped out of college) and had been astonished at how much work has been done in his absence, and that he may sign on again!

 I guess what I'm trying to say is: it's not everyday you "personally" get to meet the person who inspired you to play a game.


...But for how long? >:]


Also this happened to me once, but I've always been a little dubious about it...

Lucky he was on my team! He would've sniped me in a heartbeat.

I made something

Welcome to the semi-annual blogging of Lard Bobbo, and I just want you to know that over the past year I've become a big fan of lolcats, so I actually just made an icanhascheezburger account and used it to make this via the lolcat builder...

It's not much, but it's a start.

Until I feel like it,

The End of Civilization As We Know It: Part 2

Sorry folks, due to me realizing that I have very little time to fix the shamble that is my Academic Career. I will not blog about my predictions as predicted. I will, however, cut’n’paste the AIM conversation I made them in, plus a few extras. Note: the last four characters of all screen names have been edited out to protect those who are involved from those who would do us harm, you know what you is.

In order of appearance:
Norahs……Sharon, older sister
Ssor………Ross, (Lard Bobbo)
JSon……...Jason, elementary school best friend

Norahs**** signed on at 3:19:12 PM.
Ssor**** (3:19:42 PM): bwuhahaaa, i've been waiting 4 u
Norahs**** (3:20:10 PM): great
Ssor**** (3:20:42 PM): did im allow u 2 see what all i've typed while u were gone
Norahs**** (3:20:46 PM): yes
Norahs**** (3:20:50 PM): this time :-)
Ssor**** (3:21:52 PM): i will not allow it 2 go unseen, so i saved it as a word 97-03 document, because 07 is NOT backwards compatible
ATTENTION (3:22:11 PM): Transfer complete: strange saturn.doc.
Ssor**** (3:22:32 PM): u may have 2 control+click 2 see the links
Norahs**** (3:22:43 PM): right
Ssor**** (3:27:12 PM): r u reading, and looking at the pictures
Norahs**** (3:27:19 PM): yes
Ssor**** (3:27:41 PM): i just love what i put at the end
Ssor**** (3:29:20 PM): r u done yet
Norahs**** (3:29:26 PM): almost
Norahs**** (3:30:10 PM): you're silly
Ssor**** (3:30:53 PM): it just needs the 1 last thing...and...i dunno....becomes a tourist trap
Norahs**** (3:31:03 PM): lol

As I will NOT provide a link 2 a file on my computer, I will also cut’n’paste the document I wrote.

Oh, and since u probably won't get this, I’ll put as much into is as I can ;-)
Saturn is by far the strangest place in the solar system, which makes me want 2 go there, even though it is "feasibly" impossible at this time (oh please tell me I can go before I hit 90, please oh please oh please)
evidence that Saturn’s rings are just great bunches of galactic kitty litter
at least 1 of Saturn’s rings gets bad reception
another 1 of its rings is snagged on something
and that same ring appears 2 be fraying at the edge 2, Saturn’s gotta be using cheap fabric
and some of its other rings appear 2 be sports fans, and do The Wave when they see a small moon
“and just one more thing,” I know that’s not who they named it 4, but c’mon :-D
that Saturn itself seems 2 have a interest in geometric shapes
1 of its ice moon's, Enceladus, seems 2 have sprung a leak
and it appears 2 have been “leaking” 4 quite some time
that another 1 of its moon's, Mimas, appears 2 be a giant star wars fan-geek
it now seems 2 be the only planet that has a moon, Rhea, w/ it's own set of rings....seemingly
this recent news about Titan is the only thing so far this year, that me say aloud "cool beans"
and all this is in the presence of the great space walnut itself, Iapetus
the only thing I feel is missing is a moon in the shape of a donut, but even I think that’s unlikely
I hope you've enjoyed reading this as much as I’ve had writing it

(12:38:05 AM):
proof that there IS such a thing as galactic kitty litter
Ssor**** (12:38:43 AM): don't worry about it, my mind's been going 4 years
Ssor**** (12:38:58 AM): although it is interesting
Ssor**** (12:41:25 AM): strangley enough, it is also in the same region as the great space walnut

JSon**** (5:04:48 PM): Sup?
Ssor**** (5:06:17 PM): after what i typed 2 u, it inspired me 2 expand upon it (originally as an im 2 my sister sharon, but i expanded it 2 much and was unable 2 send it, so i copy'n'pasted it into word
JSon**** (5:06:26 PM): Cool.
JSon**** (5:07:02 PM): What is it?
Ssor**** (5:07:42 PM): a list of weird things about saturn, and links 2 picture evidence of those things
Ssor**** (5:08:10 PM): i tried 2 send it, but it failed
JSon**** (5:08:14 PM): Frick.
Ssor**** (5:09:09 PM): maybe it's because i still have it up...i'll close it's window and try again

JSon**** (5:10:47 PM): Cool.
Ssor**** (5:11:12 PM): oh, i was going 4 hilarious, or mayge a funny

Now, onto the future…

Norahs**** went away at 4:50:00 PM.
Ssor**** (8:28:33 PM): i've been wanting 2 say this, but haven't found an appropriate reason 2, and this is not even what i had in mind, but close nuff
Auto Response from Norahs**** (8:28:34 PM): tv or something
Ssor**** (8:28:41 PM):
Ssor**** (8:29:22 PM): the end of civilazation as we know it, but has the promise that the next 1 will be entertaining
Ssor**** (9:48:32 PM): while i'm still on the topic of space, i have a somewhat frightening prediction: before mankind ventures 2 other solar systems, we will have named at least 4 moons here after characters from harry potter
Ssor**** (9:48:58 PM): and i also predict that it happen sooner than we think
Ssor**** (9:51:45 PM): i'm pretty sure they've already named several moons of uranus after characters from shakespere's a mid summer's night dream
Ssor**** (9:52:23 PM): ...oh, apparently, uranus is the odd man out when it comes 2 moon names
Norahs**** (9:57:36 PM): interesting
Ssor**** (9:58:45 PM): i can just see it, a hermionie, a weasley, definatly a potter, and maybe even a snape as well
Norahs**** (9:58:54 PM): lol
Norahs**** (9:58:59 PM): malfoy?
Ssor**** (9:59:10 PM): oh sure, don't see y not
Norahs**** (9:59:19 PM): :-)
Ssor**** (10:00:12 PM): it's like i said about the space money, it's the end of civilization as we know it, but the next 1 will have a sense of humor
Norahs**** (10:00:23 PM): lol
Norahs**** (10:00:26 PM): we hope
Ssor**** (10:04:39 PM): what is ur prediction of this new civilization
Ssor**** (10:04:51 PM): and make it good>:O
Norahs**** (10:04:58 PM): i dunno
Ssor**** (10:20:53 PM): well i'll give u another 1, and we may be able 2 live long enough 2 see this: most of the "privatley owned" space agencies (like bigelow areospace, and virgin galactic) r putting alot of research into the building and deploying "space hotels" now all examples i've seen so far were based on inflatable modules, i see 1 w/ centrifugal sections, the main section naturally being the habitat section rooms, rooms, laundry, vending/ice machines, that sorta thing, section 2 being the restaurant, "The Galaxy Restaurant: Fine Dining wit A View of the Universe", and last but not least section 3, recrational facilities, weight room and centrifugal pool (i.e. not a square shaped pool, 1 that goes all the way around, in essance: the infinate pool), i don't know about u, but that pool sounds pretty BLEEPing awsome
Ssor**** (10:21:44 PM): and all it takes is 4 someone 2 have the idea...which unfortunatley i've just had
Norahs**** (10:22:06 PM): lol
Norahs**** (10:22:17 PM): that pool does sound awesome
Ssor**** (10:24:51 PM): and i want it 2 be a special kind of pool water, like something along the lines of if a solar flare hit, it's actually safer 2 be in the pool w/ ur head under water than it is 2 be anywhere else on the station, y'know that they put a little 2 much thought into the wrong thing
Ssor**** (10:25:16 PM): ...sorta thing
Norahs**** (10:25:18 PM): :-)
Ssor**** (10:36:31 PM): uuh, way 2 prepare food, sounds like "saw-tayed" what's it called--er--spelled
Norahs**** (10:36:42 PM): saute
Ssor**** (10:36:48 PM): thank u
Norahs**** (10:36:54 PM): the e has an accent over it
Norahs**** (10:37:00 PM): but no one ever puts it
Ssor**** (10:37:01 PM): ooooOOOoooh
Ssor**** (10:37:05 PM): hahaha
Norahs**** (10:37:09 PM): but that's why it's pronounced that way
Ssor**** (10:43:42 PM): my next prediction, and i'm pretty sure it's been made before, the first extraterrestrial life discovered by modern man (that's such a weird prase, like ancient man's gonna discover some after we do)....marine life on an ice moon, and what will we inevidably end up doing w/ it? "...ok, and will that be sauted or fricaseed?"
Norahs**** (10:44:01 PM): lol
Norahs**** (10:44:10 PM): are you blogging this stuff?
Norahs**** (10:44:15 PM): cuz you should
Norahs**** (10:44:19 PM): if you're not
Ssor**** (10:44:19 PM): i should but no
Ssor**** (10:44:32 PM): gotta remember this stuff though
Norahs**** (10:44:46 PM): well, just save this conversation
Ssor**** (10:45:19 PM): and if i make any more, or if u finally make URS, i will save again
Norahs**** (10:45:30 PM): lol
Norahs**** (10:45:36 PM): i won't
Norahs**** (10:45:41 PM): at least, not tonight
Norahs**** (10:45:46 PM): i'd hafta think on it
Ssor**** (10:47:50 PM): please do, and remember: more often than not, mankind takes the less intelligent path of doing things
Norahs**** (10:48:01 PM): too damn tru
Norahs**** (10:48:03 PM): e
Ssor**** (10:49:18 PM): like me 4 instance, i got a paper due monday, got a paragraph and a half done, and what am i doing about it, talking 2 u about a funny future
Norahs**** (10:49:44 PM): so, you really do like packing spoons
Ssor**** (10:50:16 PM): i must, damn subconscience
Ssor**** (10:56:58 PM): oh, and i originally intended 4 my "end of civilization" 2 be used on the cartoon: in the not 2 distant future, our hero: anti-hero/villian/evil genious (mmm hmm) Lard Bobbo, see something on a space station, that reads "Bob's Intergalactic Bread & Bistro" and says "Oh good lord! It's the end of civilization as we know it...and yet, holds the promise that the next one will be entertaining."
Ssor**** (10:58:09 PM): *that should be "at the very least be entertaining"
Norahs**** (10:58:30 PM): k

Ssor**** (11:55:43 PM): i don't know if this should count as a prediction, but as 4 fixing problems, the 1s that last the longest, or left in place the longest usually turns out 2 be the stop gap solution that was 2 keep whatever from failing completley before before a more permanet solution could be devised, and then someone forgot about it
Ssor**** (12:00:09 AM): "what is this....chewing gum?!? how did they get it outside? and how did they get it moist inna vaccuum!?!"
Norahs**** (12:00:39 AM): lol
Ssor**** (12:00:40 AM): i can believe it, that's the sad part
Ssor**** (12:02:52 AM): we can't go 2 other planets, yet we can probably devise a way 2 get warm, moist chewing gum in the cold vaccuum of space 2 plug up a busted fuel line
Ssor**** (12:04:36 AM): talk about doing the "less intellegent" thing, keeping gum moist in space is something 2 do when u're dead bored
Norahs**** (12:05:48 AM): lol

Norahs**** (2:25:06 AM): ok, it's bedtime
Norahs**** (2:25:08 AM): night
Ssor**** (2:25:32 AM): ok, i'll blog about the future, and how it will be...
Norahs**** (2:25:40 AM): lol
Norahs**** (2:25:41 AM): ok
Norahs**** (2:25:44 AM): have fun
Ssor**** (2:25:50 AM): ...really just like now, except in space
Norahs**** (2:26:03 AM): lol
Ssor**** (2:26:15 AM): boy r we, as a speicies, unimaginative
Norahs**** (2:26:40 AM): just as long as it isn't like the movies, or anime
Ssor**** (2:27:01 AM): oh, what's wrong w/ anime future
Norahs**** (2:27:02 AM): can you just see it if cowboy bebop was the future?
Norahs**** (2:27:08 AM): or gundam???
Norahs**** (2:27:13 AM): vandread?
Ssor**** (2:27:19 AM): what's wrong w/ big eyes
Norahs**** (2:27:27 AM): outlaw star?
Ssor**** (2:27:27 AM): ...well no not really
Norahs**** (2:27:31 AM): trigun?????
Ssor**** (2:28:12 AM): be more like babylon 5, our colonies will want 2 break away from us
Norahs**** (2:28:20 AM): lol
Norahs**** (2:28:31 AM): well, that's kinda gundam-esque
Ssor**** (2:29:06 AM): does it really take outside perspective 4 us 2 realise the WE don't even humans w/ a 10 ft pole
Ssor**** (2:29:17 AM): *want 2 touch
Norahs**** (2:29:21 AM): lol
Ssor**** (2:30:40 AM): oh, the space currency, did u think good, bad, and the ugl--i mean indifferent?
Norahs**** (2:31:17 AM): indifferent
Ssor**** (2:31:57 AM): what i have, seen...the 3-4 people who i found said somethin: bad
Ssor**** (2:32:23 AM): my thought slightly good

Norahs**** returned at 5:37:19 PM.
Norahs**** (5:37:40 PM): back
Norahs**** (5:38:27 PM): i liked your post
Ssor**** (5:38:46 PM): thaks
Ssor**** (5:39:40 PM): someone needed 2 defend the quid, just don't know if i was the right man 4 the job
Norahs**** (5:39:47 PM): lol

Now here’s the extra.

Ssor**** (8:45:19 PM):
do u think we'll abuse this knowledge?
Ssor**** (8:45:42 PM): *c'mon army of cavemen-clones!*
Norahs**** (8:45:55 PM): lol
Ssor**** (8:48:06 PM): technically it isn't human cloning, so it would be legal
Norahs**** (8:48:15 PM): lol
Ssor**** (8:54:17 PM): the trick is u can't really clone from a sample....can u hook supercomputers together so they can--hook a couplea supercomputers together and have them work out an ordinary (start at the basics then work ur way 2 the advanced) strand of neanderthal dna and use it 2 fertalize an egg and put it into (at first) a human surrogate mother, and bada bing, bada boom: neanderthal babé
Ssor**** (8:55:41 PM): it's ideas like this i justification of portraying myself as a cartoon supervillain in my own cartoon
Ssor**** (8:55:56 PM): *that i find
Ssor**** (9:00:19 PM): uuh yeah...
Ssor**** (9:01:19 PM): r u even paying attention?
Norahs**** (9:01:26 PM): not really
Ssor**** (9:02:26 PM): i can understand if u don't think i'm funny, but not 2 tell me u don't, i don't, u don't....whatever i just said
Norahs**** (9:02:41 PM): lol
Ssor**** (9:03:28 PM): what do u think of neanderthal babé
Norahs**** (9:03:48 PM): sounds plausible
Ssor**** (9:04:12 PM): all u need is an evil genious
Norahs**** (9:04:25 PM): lol
Norahs**** (9:04:29 PM): right
Ssor**** (9:09:41 PM): y can't we have more evil geneticists, what is it that makes geneticists turn good, cure 4 all diseases, betterment of all mankind, religious scruples (oh THAT again, wherefore doth it say "knowledge be the fruit of satan?" "genesis?" "SHUTUTH THINE MOUTH!"), i mean what?
Norahs**** (9:10:01 PM): lol
Ssor**** (9:11:30 PM): last time i checked we're already being punished 4 that
Ssor**** (9:11:47 PM): wait, i think i'm off track
Ssor**** (9:12:40 PM): dammit, typing really loud inna religious voice put me inna religious mindset
Norahs**** (9:12:51 PM): lol
Ssor**** (9:15:15 PM): gotta think cloning neanderthals to do thy--imean--MY bidding, cloning neanderthals to do my biddi--i wonder if neanderthal women look cute inna bathining suit.....oh hey, i'm getting there:-)
Norahs**** (9:15:32 PM): geez
Ssor**** (9:16:00 PM): at least that was a very NONreligious thought
Norahs**** (9:16:12 PM): true
Ssor**** (9:19:52 PM): we at least i restrained myself from saying bikini or lingiere, or however it's spelled
Norahs**** (9:20:06 PM): close enough
Ssor**** (9:22:44 PM): if u could do some evil genetics, what would u do?
Norahs**** (9:23:01 PM): not sure
Ssor**** (9:23:13 PM): what would J&E do
Norahs**** (9:23:23 PM): lol
Ssor**** (9:40:44 PM): i'm feeling tired, and it's not even 10 yet
Ssor**** (9:41:55 PM): these things happens in cycles y'know, come beddyby time, i'll be laying there awake w/ my eyes closed 4 3-4 hours
Norahs**** (9:42:51 PM): lol
Norahs**** (9:43:00 PM): yeah, i know the feeling

Well, that about does it for the future, cavewomen in bikinis (oh God, I hope they shaved their legs), Sautéed Enceladean Tiger Eels, and Fried Europan Monkeyfish (“This thing’s going to shoot all the way up to Europa! And bring us back a couple of Europa-pean lobsters to grill up!”), and the fifth dwarf planet’s two new moons: Dumbledore and Voldemort (Potter, Weasely, Granger, Snape, and Malfoy were already taken by dwarf planet #4, man those Kuiper Belt Objects get everywhere). Thank you for shopping Bobbo airways, we hope you’ve enjoyed your dinner and a movie, come again soon.

Oh, and just one more thing (wait, when did I become Colombo?)…

Norahs**** is offline and will receive your IMs when signing back in.
Ssor**** (1:16:05 PM): the end of the academic probation year stress-out, having it means that half the time, on the inside, i feel like this cat at 3min, 17sec into this video:
yet 4 2 class periods in a row, i've felt better about myself after going 2 history class, is this a sign that, if i can, i should at the very least sign up 4 a history minor next year
Ssor**** (2:28:52 PM): went out 2 the bookstore, bought some things i think i may need down the road, and somehow worked in a "said 'hi' 2 a girl i like" thus convincing me that i have only 2 speeds: pratically nil, and "OH MY GOD!!!," so go ahead, wish me Godspeed;-)
Ssor**** (2:47:09 PM): and the saying "hi" 2 the girl probably wasn't a "my confidence finally built up" moment, it was probably a "BLEEP it all, RUN W/ IT!" moment

The End of Civilization As We Know It

...And yet...the promise that the one that is to come after will, at the very least, be entertaining. Such as I thought after seeing this:

For more information (such as what the hell is it!?!) go here.

These are, or to be more accurate, would possibly be, SPACE COINS! The Quasi Universal Intergalactic Denomination, or QUID (I know what your thinking, "Quid? Isn't that what the British sometimes call a pound? Sorta like when we call a dollar a buck?" yes, that's why they're sticking with it) is intended to be used when mankind finally decides to go and make those other space stations, that Moonbase, and that Mars colony he's been going on about (and womankind turns and says "Riiiiight, and is that before or after you fix that hole in the o-zone like you promised me?") where credit cards, checks, and atms cannot reach, and therefore cannot be used. And in the case of space stations, where coins and their (laughably) sharp edges can potentially cause serious personal injury and structural damage...*nods head*...thus giving new meaning to the term "cold hard cash." Unfortunately, I have yet to find a genuinely positive review of the QUID (closest I got was the neutral-goodness of WIKI) so I guess it's up to me *mutters: cripes!* Let us say that we do get visited by aliens, and let's just they need some change (bit of a stretch, I know, but...what are you gonna do about it?), so what do we give them: A dollar? Nah, the rest of the world hates us enough as it is without us declaring our superiority to the rest of the galaxy. A pound? Nope, same thing with the UK, I think... A euro? Eeeeh, maybe. A couple hundred yen? What? It's not my fault they ain't worth nothing! A dong? *snickers* That one just cracks me up. Hell no I say! Give 'em a QUID, buy 'em a beer, show 'em a good time, but most importantly, ask them what the hell could they possibly need change for!?!?

Well I was going to tell you about some of my predictions for this new way of "knowing" civilization, but oh good lord did I draw this thing on the coins out! But not to worry, I pretty much have them saved onto my computer. So tune in next week when we find out from what mythos will mankind ultimately use to name the last moons of the solar system, how space hotels will make artificial gravity even more fun than zero gravity, what humanity ends up doing to the first extraterrestrial life form it encounters (Oh don't even go there! That's just nasty!), a temporary fix that will boggle the mind, and what else I come up with over the course of the week. See you then.

In The Nature With Lard Bobbo

Since last post: 2 F's, 2 D's, 1 D+, and 1 NX, I heard NX means you don't have to worry about it, but it was in the class that DIDN'T count for credit, so academic probations all 'round!

It started during the last 2 weeks of the fall semester, I remember seeing 3 pups, all with identical coats, near the front of the library, with another behind the library doing whatever, I believe I actually told it "Uhh, your friends are that way."

I saw 1 again shortly after arriving back here with poor academic standing, and I thought nothing of it. End of that.

I saw 1 yet again (probably the same 1 from behind the library) on Friday the 11th, and then I noticed something, the tail was not raised, something usually seen on, not pups, but wolf cubs. Little baby wolves on campus? AweSOME!!! But I need something more than my undescriptive description to get confirmation of their wolviness. So I set out (haphazardly) with the intent of capturing 1 of these animals on film--uh digital memory...

No luck, but found something interesting not but 2-3 feet from where I saw 1 earlier that day...

Someone's been feeding them, I don't blame 'em, I'd keep 1 if I could get away with it.

Day--Night 1 was a bust, let's see if I did better the following day...

Troy McGreggor: FOOD!
Crow T. Robot impersonating Zap Rowsdower, a Canadian: Yeah, no beer d'ou.
*Man climbs down from ceiling*
Tom Servo impersonating Troy: More FOOD!
Man draws shotgun: What the hell you doing here?
Crow impersonating Troy: We were eating your FOOD!

Damn, the wrist strap got in the way. Let's see here, light and dark dry foods, some wet food, water, and what looks like a giant egg roll, don't ask. Apart from that, nothing new for Sunday morning. In case you were wondering, I was quoting Mystery Science Theater 3000, making fun of The Final Sacrifice, a Canadian B-movie, or "Zap & Troy: The Legendary Journeys" as Mike called it.

All was quiet (I had stopped hunting and decided to keep the camera on me just in case I spot 1 on the way 2 class), and with the snow comes new evidence that I'm not crazy (every little bit helps).

What a nice effect this picture ha--wait a minute...THE LENS DIDN'T OPEN ALL THE WAY AGAIN, DAMMIT!

Take 2: better, Wolffit twacks, uh-hu-hu-hu-hu-hu-hu-hu-hu.

And by pure chance, after going to the library, tried to get a copy of a project I'm working on so i could work on it out of class (no such luck, there was a class in the computer lab), and headed toward the student union debating weather or not to get something to eat from there, and there it was...

Awwww... Ain't 'e cute...

Tail down, just as I said, but my sources say that not gray wolves aren't suppose to be anywhere near Terre Haute, let alone the university campus in the center of downtown.

Off he goes (or she, I decided not to get that close, so your guess is as good as mine).

Yes, that's it, show more face...beautiful!

Mmmm-mmm, that must've been some gooooood giant egg roll.

Cannon PowerShot A530, 4x optical zoom, and 16x digital zoom, man the 16x looks like crap.

I really would like to have a pet, or 2 (cat and 2 dogs), but I'm in the middle of college, and I'm pretty sure these dorms have strict No Pets policy with the possible exception for small fish (fat lotta good that does me), and I know that if I got a pet and asked Mom and Dad to take care of it while I'm here, I'll get the standard "We are not going to take care of your pets, it's your responsibility," I wonder what the pet policy is at the off campus student apartment complexes...

In related news: My sister Sharon "Elucidated Ponderings of an Apathetic Mind" Spilmon got a cat, Dai-kun the Impaler (I'd say she has a screw loose, but the same applies to both me, my immediate family, and my Mom's side of the family, Dad's side qualifies as normal, but they do have black sheep who are fun to be around) as for my parents, they're still going through the "Never again" phase with pets and children, I still find it funny that Mom did not know she was pregnant with me till the 5th month. Sadly though, Ma wasn't laughing so she had her tubes tied right after my cesarean. Man, being the accident of the family rocks!

Oh, I almost forgot, the reason I did this is to find out if they are wolfs or just wild dogs, so anyone who has a sliver of background on the subject please post comment.

Please note: I am a lazy bastard. Even so, I still check for comments just a tad more often than I post, the last few posts were pitiful. I will now leave you all with a quote from Johnny 5: Need input!

Edit: I now realize that I had comments set 2 registered users only. Seeing as how my parents and everyone they tell about this blog are not a registered users, I felt it wise to fix that. Now everyone can put their 2 cents in, even Aunt Nancy! Enjoy.

I Did Not Leave You, Just Forgot.

Well, the second day of finals week and already I know I failed a class, and another appears inevitable at this point. The next time I blog (after Christmas) I will tell you the goods and the bads.

Anyways, for a final project...or just a project, I'm not really sure anymore...I made a website, I'll give you all a link to it, but be warned, as per the directions, it has a hitcounter. So I will know if you have or have not looked at it, but I rather you did.


Until next time...

Birthday Presents Part II


Not too long after my previous post I went on a little shopping spree, where I should have spent the money I have so far gotten (still haven't received cash money/check from Grandma and Nancy, Grandma is usually pretty generous, but Nancy...I know it will be $20.02, 20 for how old I am, and .02¢ because she has to put her two cents worth in, not to be offensive or anything, but Nancy can be kind of a nut sometimes, but that's why we love her) but I wrote a check and at $58.93 it nearly doubled what I've gotten so far, it would have been more but the buses here now give free rides to student with ID (SCORE!).

The mall was a bust, so I high tailed it to Wal-Mart (if anyone reading this is against Wal-Mart then I apologize, but to me it's just a store) where I bought at $34.88...

I believe everyone has (or at least should have) a show which they've never watched during it's first run, then discovers that they were missing something all these years, this one is mine. :')

Now I have the feeling the parents are not gonna like what I'm gonna say next, but I'm the last child therefore they don't care what I do as long as I don't turn out a failure. I wasn't really even looking for this next item, but it was my shopping spree, I'd felt bad if I only got one thing out of it, so at $19.77...

What? I don't own an x-box, seriously.

Subtotal...$54.65, plus tax...$57.93, now you don't have to be good at math to say "Hey, he's a dollar short," and you're probably wondering "what was that extra dollar for"...

So I was thirsty! Wanna make something of it?

Well, apart from the missing birthday money, it looks like this is all I'm getting for now.
Later taders.

Birthday Presents

It all started 8:30 pm Friday night when I got this...

...and mail hours had since been closed for the weekend. My birthday being on a Sunday this year, made this piece of put a real dampener on my weekend.

But I did get a check from my Aunt Vernia (pronounced ver-nuh for those of you who read this and are not related to me) 30 dollars, there's at least some light at the end of the tunnel. My parents came up on the day of my 20th birthday, which coincidentally is the day before their 30th wedding anniversary (I like to think of myself as the defective gift they couldn't return :P), they didn't bring money or gift (hehe....whuh?) but they brought an amusing card and BOUGHT me a new stereo...

...oooh look! My list of campus food court hours!

Come Monday ("it'll be alright", oh sorry I guess I like music more than I thought) I finally got the packages from my Aunt Nancy and my sister Sharon, but no money, Nancy's note said it was mailed separately. But I did get...

...Nancy's so predictable.

And from Sharon...

...YAY! ONE of the things I asked for...but alas, it wasn't one of the copies that had the bonus disc Cast Your Pod to the Wind, oh well.

Oh now, she's just being silly, a game where you are an attorney? Don't get me wrong, I'll play it, I just don't understand why.

Well, I plan to put a new post up soon, but I make no guaranties, and to tell you the truth, there are times I forget I have a blog for which to update. Well, laters.
